I much prefer shooting with natural light, the shots turn out better than artificial lights definitely. These are the scenes in my Grandpa's garden, while my grandma was still alive, the garden was much more vibrant. She would spend her afternoons tending her garden, raking up dried leaves or pulling weeds. She would also rear chickens or ducks at the back yard. I missed her.
There used to be mango trees and a swing, but those are gone now. I remember my grand mother would put the unripe mangoes in the rice urn to ripen them. Or eat the green mangoes with kicap. I spend a lot of time in this garden during my childhood, playing with neighbor kids and my cousins, especially during festive seasons like Chinese New Year and Mid-Autumn festival. We would carry lanterns and go around the paths, pretending its a maze, drawing up an imaginary treasure map and pretend we're hunting for treasures. Or plucking those bougainvilleas petals and sprinkle it in a rusty Milo can of water, "to make poison for -insert enemy's name-" I wonder if my cousins still remembers?
